I wonder if it's related to the funky atmos splash screen pattern and "folding" audio clips at the beginning of every disk that the Oppo doesn't like?
Will try disk switch and waiting longer tomorrow.
My wife will wonder why I'm going back to earlier episodes ;-)

It's designed for couch potatoes like me who have nothing better to do than to binge watch their favourite TV shows and it was designed by a sadist to eliminate a handy opportunity for a rest break between discs for us heavy binge watchers :-)
I have been known to consume a season of GOT in 2 days.

Well, hey! I'm 69 and retired also.
But I noticed a long time ago that some appear to age faster than others and some age in different ways. Me, when I gotta go I gotta go -- no unbroken marathon sessions. I could Play All, but it would just mean some quick Pause and Run actions if I get too absorbed in the shows.
(Just wanted to sneak in the off topic for completion.
For both you and Chris, David, I was able to confirm everything I said previously -- at least with my 203. Keep in mind that I always play GOT in Atmos. I didn't expect that matters and so I tried one test sequence with DD 5.1 with the same results. Also, I learned something new (to me) about the OPPO 203.
I only did this testing with Episodes 2 and 3 of Season 2 as it completely confirmed what I had seen earlier with Season 1. This time I fast-forwarded through E.2 stopping at the credits (and noted the something new -- see below). During the credits, as usual I pressed Home which took me to Home and the Episode 3 title. Press Enter for Play and it asks you to Insert Disc 2. (At the end of all episodes on the disc, 4 mins 19 secs of WARNING screens will come up. If I get this far, I press Home and get the same E.3 title. If I let it play through the Warnings (quite boring), when they end, it automatically goes Home and we proceed as above.) Press Open, load the next disc, Press Open (to Close) and if you do nothing, in 15 seconds, the HBO screen comes up and then Episode 3 automatically starts. (If you eject during the GOT lead-in, and then reload the disc, it continues from where you left off.) At no point did pressing either Home or Pop-up Menu hang or in any way delay the playback. If the disc is not at a point where it can obey the Home/Pop-up Menu button, the 203 display a red NOT symbol (slashed circle) in the upper right.
What was new to me (that maybe everyone else knows), is that when you fast-forward, there are 5 speed levels. More importantly, if during ff you press Info, you get the normal info header and footer and the header actually shows the progress of the ff -- just as it will show your progress during a show. That really helps when you want to ff through 53 minutes of a 53 min and 31 sec show (for example). You can see exactly when to press Play.
Anyway, Chris if you continue having this issue and can't determine what is different about your 203, I'd say that a report to OPPO is in order. It's not a problem on my 203.
